‘One of the plurals’ uses a singular verb. e.g: One of the monkeys is naughty; the subject of the verb ‘is’ one.
‘One of the plurals that/who’ uses a plural verb: e.g. One of the monkeys that are naughty; the subject of the verb is not the singular one but the plural monkeys.
Ain't the two expressions different?

Can we infer from the OA that ketchup often contains both sugar and chemical ingredients in a high amount? If so, doesn't the meaning conveyed by OA change the meaning conveyed by original sentence, which says ketchup contains only sugar in high amount?

Split 1
Use of although and and yet is redundant , either is sufficient .

Split 2
That refers refers to products so we have to use plural verb

Therefore B is the answer .

Hi,

Though I am not an expert, I can help you out with this query. You are correct that One of Xs requires a singular verb afterwards; however, please note that the above construction is slightly different. We have One of Xs THAT. The general rule is whenever we have One of Xs THAT/WHICH, the verb must agree with the noun prior to "that/which". If that noun is singular, we use a singular verb. If plural, then plural. Here we have "One of food products that are most loved". That refers back to the food products, which is plural. Hence, we must follow up with a plural verb (are).

Hope this helps!
